Hold Fast and Draw Near to Jesus

1. Jesus has passed through the heavens (v. 14).

2. Jesus can sympathize with our weaknesses (v. 15).

3. Jesus offers us mercy in our time of need (v. 16).

“The conscience, spurred by the devil, the flesh, and the fallen world; says, ‘God is your enemy. Give up in despair.’ God, in His own Fatherly love and through His Son’s grace and through His Word and through the witness of His people; says, ‘I have no wrath. You are accepted in the beloved. I am not angry with you. We are reconciled!’”—Martin Luther
